Apple's next affordable smartphone, the iPhone SE 3 launch date is set for next month. Apple is expected to host its Spring event in March and the date may well be March 8, 2022. And the spotlight for the event is on iPhone SE 3 launch, which is the successor to the iPhone SE 2020 smartphone. iPhone SE 3 is well into the mass production phase as expectations are that it is going to be an extremely successful phone. The reason is the iPhone SE price - it is likely to be very affordable. In fact, it is expected it to be so affordable that analysts have said the phone will lure billions of Android users to the iPhone eco system!

    According to the leaks and claims so far, the iPhone SE 3 will keep the same design as its predecessor iPhone SE 2020, while the main highlight is 5G connectivity. It is also suggested that Apple's 5nm A15 Bionic chip, which is also present in the iPhone 13 series, could be found inside the iPhone SE 3. The current iPhone SE looks similar to the iPhone 8 design. It will continue to offer a Touch ID home button with thick bezels.

    It's not just about the iPhone SE 3 launch…

    Rumours suggest that the Apple Spring event will not only focus on iPhone SE 3, but there's a possibility of a 13-inch MacBook Pro, a Mac mini, and a new iPad Air 5th generation being launched. Rumours suggest that the March event may unveil a revamped version of the 13-inch MacBook Pro with an updated M2 chip. MacRumors reports hinted that the laptop will have the same design as the current MacBook Pro while featuring a Touch Bar. Though, there will be no notch or ProMotion display technology on it.

    While a Mac Mini featuring additional ports and an improved version of M1 chip with a 10-core CPU is expected to come along with other devices. It is reported that the Apple silicon chip will support up to 64GB of RAM and four Thunderbolt ports.
